NieR Replicant’s rework features a ton of in-game side content. Compared to the main missions, the side missions and quests are also filled with challenges and danger. The Damaged Map quest is one of them. You can get it from the Blacksmith in the village, and since you get a weapon as a reward, it is crucial for unlocking the other endings to the game as well. But you do have to travel here and there to complete the Damaged Map.
